Life360 has the lowest battery drain of all locator apps on the market. Our advanced algorithm helps us decide when to wake up your phone and update your location to avoid leaving your GPS on.
You should expect about 10% shorter battery life in a 24-hour period when running Life360. This amount can vary significantly depending on how often you have the app open, how often you manually refresh a Circle member's location, or how often you drive.
When the device is in transit, Life360 turns on high-precision GPS in order to show detailed driving history which can drain battery over long periods of time.
We are always working to improve battery usage, so make sure you have the newest version of the app on your device.
